After reciting that a marriage was intended to occur between Thomas Hinds and Anne Sleater and affirming Walter Hinds' love and regard for his son Thomas, Walter officially made a "child's part and portion" transfer by deed, to Thomas, of the Lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy "with all their appurtenances (rights and privileges) in as full and ample a manner" as Walter Hinds "enjoyed and possessed". Next, Alexander Sleater, in consideration of the intended marriage, agreed to pay to Thomas Hinds £800 Sterling as a "marriage portion" and finally, Thomas Hinds agreed that in consideration of the marriage portion, as soon as the marriage had been solemnized, would settle on his new wife, Anne, by proper deed, a jointure of £60 yearly in case there should be no issue from the marriage or in case of issue, £50 yearly. Thomas also agreed that after his death, Anne's jointure would continue and that the Rights and Title of the Lands would descend to the male issue of the marriage and that after Anne's death, her jointure should also return to the male issue of the marriage. In his agreement, Thomas reserved the right "at any time he should think proper" to raise on the Lands the sum of £1000 as portions for younger children. It was further agreed that should there be no male issue of the marriage, then it should be lawful for Thomas Hinds to raise the sum of £2000 from the Lands for the female issue of the marriage and that then, and in that case, the Lands should revert and return to Thomas' father, Walter Hinds, and his heirs. It was further agreed that should Thomas survive Anne and decide to marry a second wife, that then it should be lawful for Thomas to raise on the Lands £40 as a Dower to be settled on the woman at the second marriage. Witnesses to the Articles of Agreement were the Reverend George Carson of Cragham and John Hinds of Corrakane, County of Cavan, and the Memorial was executed, signed and sealed by Thomas Hinds in the presence of John Hinds and Thomas Faris of the City of Dublin, Gentleman. John Hinds made an oath stating that he was a subscribing witness to the Articles of Agreement and to this Memorial, saying that he saw the Articles duly executed by the parties of Walter Hinds, Thomas Hinds and Alexander Sleater and that he also saw the Memorial executed by Thomas Hinds.

(Son) Marriage Settlement3 February 1784 On 3 February 1784, Ralph Hinds of Mulhussey, County Meath, Esq. of the first part, his second son Matthew Hinds and Sarah Gerrard, spinster and one of the daughters of William Gerrard of Dormstown, in the County of Meath Esq. of the second part, the said William Gerrard of the third part, and William Gerrard of Liscarton in the County of Meath Esq. and Thomas Hinds of the City of Dublin Esq. of the fourth part, made a Memorial of Indentured Deed of Release. After first reciting that Ralph Hinds was seized in fee simple of (owned unconditionally) the different lands contained in the deed, and also reciting that a marriage was intended to be thereby had between Matthew Hinds and Sarah Gerrard, the Deed of Release identified the portions of his lands Ralph was agreeing to give in trust for the benefit of his son Matthew Hinds and his wife Sarah Gerrard with William Gerrard of Liscartin, whose relationship to Sarah was not identified, and Matthew's brother Thomas Hinds as trustees. Ralph Hinds first granted, bargained, sold, released and confirmed to William Gerrard and Thomas Hinds the towns and lands of Nedd, Cornagee, the part of Toberlion called Duffin and Meltea, otherwise Mellick, situated, lying and being in the County of Cavan, with all and singular their appurtenances. Thomas Hinds and William Gerrard as trustees, their heirs and assigns, were to hold the said lands and premises thereby granted and released, with the appurtenances, to their own use and maintenance, and partially, after the marriage of Matthew and Sarah, to the use of Matthew and his assigns during his life. And from and after his death, to the use of the said trustees for five hundred years; to the use of the first son of Matthew by Sarah and the heirs of such first son; in default thereof to the use of the second, third, fourth and all and every son and sons of Matthew by Sarah, successively, one after another in seniority of the heirs of all and every such son and sons, such sons of the heirs of his body to be preferred. With no such issue, the lands were to default back to the use of Ralph Hinds, his heirs and assigns forever. And, concerning the said five hundred years to the Trustees to support the other contingent premises and for the other purposes therein and partially upon trust. In case the said Sarah Gerrard should survive the said Matthew Hinds and there should be no issue of their marriage living at his decease or if any issue and the same should die before the age of twenty-one, the Trust was to pay or to authorize said Sarah and her assigns to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands included in this Grant and Release, a yearly annuity rent charge of £100 during her natural life for her and their own use and benefit; and in case Sarah should survive Matthew, and there be living issue at his decease, then and so long as the said children lived, the Trust was to pay or to authorize Sarah to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands an annual annuity rent charge of £70, in lieu of the said annuity of £100, during her natural life. Sarah's annual annuity, whichever it turned out to be, was to be paid half yearly on the first of November and the first of May by equal portions without deductions. The first payment was to be made on such of the said days which shall first happen next after the decease of Matthew Hinds, with a power for Sarah and her assigns to distrain (seize for payment of the debt); and in case there should be an eldest son and one or more other child or children of Matthew Hinds on the body of Sarah Gerrard to be begotten, or in case there should not be any son of the intended marriage and all their issue should be a daughter or daughters, then William Gerrard of Liscarton and Thomas Hinds, their executors, administrators and assigns, should by sale or mortgage during the said term of five hundred years, levy or borrow £1,000 for the portion or portions of the other child or children and pay or make over the said sum among the child or children other than an eldest or only son in such shares or proportions as Matthew Hinds by deed or by his last will should appoint. The Deed of Release and Memorial was signed and sealed by all parties and witnessed by Edward King of the City of Dublin Gentleman and Christian Jordan, Writing Clerk on 04 February 1784, and registered the same day.3

(Son) Marriage Settlement2 April 1784Thomas was both a party to and a witness to another Memorial Deed on 2 April 1784 when his father and his older brother John Hinds of the first part, William Gerrard of Dormstown, in the County of Meath Esq. and his eldest daughter Rebecca Gerrard of the second part, Edward King of the City of Dublin Gentleman of the third part, and Thomas himself of the City of Dublin Gentleman of the fourth part, made a Memorial of Indentured Deed of Release as a marriage settlement agreement. Reciting that a marriage was intended shortly to be solemnized between John Hinds and Rebecca Gerrard, Ralph Hinds did grant, bargain, sell, release and confirm unto Edward King all that and those the town and lands of Mulhussey containing one hundred and six acres more or less and three acres of the lands of Milltown situate in the Barony of Deece and County of Meath with the rights, members and appurtenances to hold unto Edward King his heirs and assigns for and during the natural lives and life of John Smyth, second son of John Smyth of Violinstown in the County of Westmeath, and of Matthew Hinds and John Hinds, second and third sons of Ralph Hinds, and the lives and lives of them and for and during the life and lives of such person or persons from time to time entered in any renewal forever and forever thereafter interest that person, and immediately after the decease of John Hinds, that Rebecca Gerrard and her assigns should and might yearly during her life receive and take to her and there use one annuity of £100 to be issued out of and charged upon all and singularly the lands of T..... and Herede.... to be paid to Rebecca Gerrard and her assigns by two half yearly payments on every first day of May and first day of November, the first payment to be made on such of the said days as should next happen after the death of the said John Hinds, with a power for the said Rebecca to distrain (seize for payment of the debt).

It appears from reading the will that he put much of his estate into a trust or series of trusts, with Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry as trustees, for the purpose of perpetuating the Hinds legacy for eternity. The order of succession was designed to be (1) Walter Hinds, eldest son; (2) Ralph Hinds, fourth son; (3) Walter Hinds, nephew and son-in-law, husband of daughter Anne Hinds; and (4) Richard Stephens, his grandson.

In his will, Ralph confirmed that he had already given his third son, Thomas Hinds, the Deed of Sale on the lands of Curraghstown situate in the County of Meath.6
(Bride's Relative) Marriage Settlement4 July 1794 On 4 July 1794, Michael Gibney of Dormstown, County Meath, Ireland, Gentleman, and his wife Anne (Gerrard) Gibney of the first part, Thomas Hinds of the City of Dublin, Gentleman, Attorney-at-Law and John Gibney of Navan in the County of Meath, Gentleman, Doctor of Physics, of the second part, and Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, widow, Elizabeth Gerrard and Catherine Gerrard, spinsters, of the third part, made a Memorial of an Indented Deed of Settlement. Reciting among other things that the deed was under the will of the Gerrard sisters' father, William Gerrard, and that a marriage was already had between Anne Gerrard and Michael Gibney, the memorial deed agreement outlined the terms and conditions of the couple's marriage settlement.7
(Brother-in-Law) Deed Memorial6 February 1795Thomas was party to a deed of lease and release dated 05 and 6 February 1795 made between Walter Hinds of Corrakane, grandson and heir at law of Walter Hinds, late of Corrakane, deceased, of the first part, Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, eldest son and heir at law of Thomas Hinds, deceased, and also a grandson of Walter Hinds of Corrakane deceased, of the second part, Thomas Hinds of the city of Dublin of the third part, and Christopher Matthews of Baytownpark in the county of Meath, of the fourth part, whereby Walter Hinds of Corrakane and Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, for the considerations therein mentioned, did give, grant, bargain, sell, remise, release and confirm unto Thomas Hinds, his heirs and assigns, all that and those the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy to hold the towns, lands and premises unto Thomas Hinds to the intent that he might become perfect tenant of the freehold to the end that one or more common recovery or recoveries might thereof be had and suffered in which Christopher Matthews was to be the demandant (or plaintiff) in the recovery or recoveries, Thomas Hinds the tenant, and Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin was to be vouched to warranty. And the recoveror and recoverors in such recovery and recoveries named or to be named to stand and be seized of the towns, lands and premises to the only use and behalf of Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, his heirs and assigns, subject to the charges and encumbrances contained in the articles of agreement therein and herein before mentioned.8
(Brother-in-Law) Land Recovery1795A common recovery was suffered on the towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy in Easter term 1795 and Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall, by virtue of his earlier deed of release and common recovery, became seized in his demesne as of fee of, and in, the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy.8

To hold to Robert Wilson, his heirs and assigns, during the lives of Matthew Hinds and Thomas Hinds, who we suspect were Mary's brothers, provided Mary Walsh shall so live. The signed and witnessed deed was recorded on 4 May 1795.9
(Trustee) Deed Memorial29 April 1814Thomas was a participant, and also assigned as trustee, on a Memorial deed dated 29 April 1814 that included Eleanora Anne Potterton, otherwise Hinds, and her husband Thomas Potterton of Ballaghtalion, County Meath, Esq. of the first part, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds of Trim, County Meath, widow and mother of Eleanora Anne, Martha Hinds of Trim, spinster, daughter of Sarah, and John Hinds of the City of Dublin, gentleman and only son of Sarah of Trim of the second part, Anne (Gerrard) Gibney of Eccles Street in the City of Dublin, widow, John Small of Rutland Square in the City of Dublin, Esq. and Catherine (Gerrard) Small, his wife, and Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, widow of the third part, the Reverend Mungo Henry Waller of Allenstown in the County of Meath, clerk of the fourth part, and Thomas Hinds of Newtown in County Kildare, Esq. of the fifth part, made a Memorial of an indentured deed agreement. The deed began with a review four other pertinent events: William Gerrard's 1788 will and subsequent 1790 probate, the death of Matthew Hinds, husband of William's daughter, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, before or in 1809, and the 1813 marriage settlement agreement for Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Potterton.

Reciting that William Gerrard of Dormstown, County Meath, gentleman, deceased, made his will dated 24 December 1788 and thereby, amongst bequests to his other daughters, bequeathed unto the Reverend Singleton Harlowe, Robert Waller and James Gibney, his trustees, an amount of £1200 in trust that they and his survivors and the executors and administrators of such survivors, should place out the same at interest and permit his daughter Sarah Hinds to receive the yearly interest for her separate use. And further, that after the death of his daughter Sarah, the trustees, their executors and administrators, should transfer the £1200 to such of Sarah's children as should be then living, and that by her will she should approve and appoint his daughters Rebecca Hinds, Elizabeth, Anne and Catherine Gerrard executors. Reciting further that William Gerrard died without altering his will and that it was proved in the Court of Prerogative Probate granted to Elizabeth Gerrard, Catherine Gerrard, since married to John Small and Anne Gibney, three of the executors named and that the £1200 bequeathed by the will to Sarah was secured by the bond of Robert Waller, deceased, then of Ministown in the County of Meath, Esq. bearing date of 22 February 1790 with an attorney's warrant for confession of judgment in the final sum of £2400 conditioned for payment of the principal sum of £1200 under the will of William Gerrard upon which Anne Gibney, Rebecca Hinds, John Small and Catherine his wife did, around 1809, obtain a judgment in the Court of Common Pleas against Robert Waller stating that Matthew Hinds, husband of Sarah, was since dead leaving his widow Sarah and three children, namely Eleanora Anne, Martha and John Hinds, all of whom had attained their respective ages of 21 years. Next the deed explained that, by an indented deed of four parts dated 26 August 1813 and made between Thomas Potterton, Anna Maria Donnelly and Hester Rynd of the first part, Sarah Hinds of the second part, Eleanora Anne, then Hinds, of the third part, and Henry Potterton, gentleman, and Rebecca Hinds of the fourth part, the deed recited that a marriage was intended shortly to be had between Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Hinds, and reciting that £1200 was held in trust for Sarah, mother of Eleanora Anne, and that on the result of the marriage being accomplished, Sarah had agreed that £600 of the £1200 should be payable to Thomas Potterton immediately after Sarah's death; then the agreement witnessed that in consideration of the intended marriage and the £600, Thomas made a provision for Eleanora in case she should outlive him and her issue. The indenture further witnessed a deed in which Sarah, in consideration of the intended marriage, had made provisions for Eleanora Anne and did give, grant and appoint the £600, being one-half of the £1200, to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators and assigns to be payable to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators or assigns immediately after the death her mother, Sarah. Then it was witnessed that the marriage had taken effect and that Thomas Potterton, by virtue of his marriage settlement deed, was entitled to the £600 upon Sarah's decease and that Thomas desired to sell the £600 and had applied to Reverend Mungo Henry Waller who had agreed to the purchase. Thomas had agreed to accept £400, which Mungo had agreed to pay to him. The other parties to the deed had agreed to ratify and confirm the purchase and to relinquish to Mungo all their right, title and claim in default of an appointment by Sarah, or in case of the decease of any or all of her children in her lifetime, or in case Sarah should execute her power of appointment so as to otherwise disappoint Thomas and Eleanora Anne or their issue of the £600 or of any part thereof. The indenture witnessed that, upon execution of the agreement and in consideration of the £400 paid by Mungo to Thomas Potterton, and of £1 apiece paid to Eleanora Anne Potterton, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, Martha Hinds, John Hinds, Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, John and Catherine (Gerrard) Small and Anne (Gerrard) Gibney, Thomas and Eleanora Potterton, Sarah, Martha and John Hinds, did grant, bargain and assign, and Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small, and Anne Gibney confirmed unto Mungo H. Waller, his executors, administrators and assigns, the principal sum of £600, and reciting that by deed and Memorial, Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small and Anne Gibney did assign to Thomas Hinds as trustee, his executors, administrators and assigns, a judgment. It was thereby declared that the £600 was invested with Thomas Hinds in trust as to £600 and the interest thereof from the death of Sarah Hinds for Mungo H. Waller and the interest due and to grow due on the fact of the judgment in trust for Sarah Hinds, her executors, administrators and assigns for life. And after her decease, as to the monies secured by the judgment above, £600 for the person or persons whom Sarah should appoint. The deed and Memorial was signed and witnessed by each of the parties involved on various dates, and was registered on 4 May 1814.10

We have not yet been able to learn, however, about Anne Gore's family. Who were her parents and siblings? Only a few Gores have been identified as possible connections, Ralph Nathaniel Gore, Ralph Gore and Elsie (Clements) Gore. Ralph Nathanial was at least a generation older than William's mother Anne, and Ralph and Elsie (Clements) Gore were Ralph Nathaniel's parents. An expansion of our Gore research is definitely needed if we are to identify Anne Gore's family.1,3

Walter Hinds

b. 1703, d. September 1777
RelationshipsGrandson of John Hinds
Grandfather of Walter Hinds
ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Father*Ralph Hinds1,2,3 d. Dec 1752
Mother*Anne Hussey d. Jun 1737
Name-DescriptiveThe descriptive name we used to clarify the identification of this Walter Hinds, as we attempted to place him correctly within the Hinds family, was Walter Hinds (1703-1777) of Corrakane.2
Birth*1703Walter Hinds was born in 1703.4
Freeman*3 October 1726He was made a Freeman of Cavan, County Cavan, Ireland, on 3 October 1726. This meant that he was legally recognized as a white male over 21 years of age holding full rights of citizenship, being free to engage in a trade or business, own land, and to vote.5
Marriage*1738He married Martha Faris.2,4
(Father) Research Notes Martha Hinds, a possible daughter of Walter Hinds and Martha Faris, was not mentioned in his will, proved in 1778. It is not yet known whether Martha predeceased her parents, or was identified on the Family Tree source as their daughter in error.2,6
(Groom's Cousin) Marriage Settlement2 June 1752A memorial of certain articles of marriage dated 2 June 1752 was made between Andrew Bell of Aghnacreevy, County Cavan, and Andrew Bell, his son and heir apparent, of the one part, Ann Clarke of Putiaghan, spinster, of the other part and Walter Hinds of Corrakane of the third part, all in the county of Cavan concerning a marriage to be had between Andrew Bell, the son of Andrew, and Ann Clarke. In consideration of £177, 16 shillings and 3 pence secured to be paid by Walter Hinds, Andrew Bell the father assigned and made over unto Andrew Bell his son all his right, title and interest in and to the lands of Aghnacreevy, he paying unto his father during his life and also during the life of his mother Lettice £14 yearly to commence from the first day of May next. Then Andrew, the father, for the considerations mentioned, assigned and made over to Andrew, his son, all his right, title and interest in and to the lands of Ballyheelan and after his death to the male heirs of Andrew lawfully begotten on the body of Ann. And it was thereby agreed that in case Ann should survive Andrew, she should enjoy one third full parts of all lands and chattels as a jointure, and in case that Andrew the son should not have any male issue, then the lands of Aghnacreevy should be left to Robert Bell, the father Andrew's son, and Robert's male issue. And in case Robert should not have any male issue, then to the female issue of Andrew Bell, the son. The agreement also gave Andrew, the son, the power to settle a proper provision for his female issue. Witnesses to the document included Thomas Hinds, Samuel Stephens, Walter Bell and Samuel Donaldson, all members of the Hinds-Clarke-Bell extended family. The memorial deed was registered on 31 March 1756.7
(Father) Relationship NoteThe burial records of Ballintemple Parish, County Cavan, Ireland, contain an entry for the burial of Isaac Hinds with the notation that he was the son of Walter Hinds. Which Walter Hinds is not known at this point and Isaac has been placed, for research purposes, with this family until more is known about him. Martha (Faris) Hinds was Walter's wife and may have been Isaac's mother.8
(Heir) Will21 September 1766John Hinds of Kilmainham, County Cavan, Ireland, left a will dated 21 September 1766 and proven on 7 Feb 1769 naming the following beneficiaries: Mary (Hinds) Stephens, Mary (Hinds) Clarke, Ralph Clarke, Mary Anne Clarke, Catherine (Clarke) Stephens, Anthony Clarke, Walter Hinds, John Hinds, Thomas Hinds, William Hinds, Margaret Hinds, Richard Booth, George Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Ralph Hinds, John Hinds, Margaret Latterton, William Latterton, Mary Latterton, George Grahams, Robert Forster Shields and Jane Trimble. To his brother, Walter, he bequeathed ten pounds sterling.9
Deed Memorial*1 August 1770 On 1 August 1770 Walter Hinds of Corrakane, County Cavan, Ireland, and his son Thomas Hinds made a Memorial Deed, Conveyance and Will agreement with Alexander Slator of Whitehill, County Longford on behalf of his daughter, Anne Sleater. After reciting that a marriage was intended to occur between Thomas Hinds and Anne Sleater and affirming Walter Hinds' love and regard for his son Thomas, Walter officially made a "child's part and portion" transfer by deed, to Thomas, of the Lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy "with all their appurtenances (rights and privileges) in as full and ample a manner" as Walter Hinds "enjoyed and possessed". Next, Alexander Sleater, in consideration of the intended marriage, agreed to pay to Thomas Hinds £800 Sterling as a "marriage portion" and finally, Thomas Hinds agreed that in consideration of the marriage portion, as soon as the marriage had been solemnized, would settle on his new wife, Anne, by proper deed, a jointure of £60 yearly in case there should be no issue from the marriage or in case of issue, £50 yearly. Thomas also agreed that after his death, Anne's jointure would continue and that the Rights and Title of the Lands would descend to the male issue of the marriage and that after Anne's death, her jointure should also return to the male issue of the marriage. In his agreement, Thomas reserved the right "at any time he should think proper" to raise on the Lands the sum of £1000 as portions for younger children. It was further agreed that should there be no male issue of the marriage, then it should be lawful for Thomas Hinds to raise the sum of £2000 from the Lands for the female issue of the marriage and that then, and in that case, the Lands should revert and return to Thomas' father, Walter Hinds, and his heirs. It was further agreed that should Thomas survive Anne and decide to marry a second wife, that then it should be lawful for Thomas to raise on the Lands £40 as a Dower to be settled on the woman at the second marriage. Witnesses to the Articles of Agreement were the Reverend George Carson of Cragham and John Hinds of Corrakane, County of Cavan, and the Memorial was executed, signed and sealed by Thomas Hinds in the presence of John Hinds and Thomas Faris of the City of Dublin, Gentleman. John Hinds made an oath stating that he was a subscribing witness to the Articles of Agreement and to this Memorial, saying that he saw the Articles duly executed by the parties of Walter Hinds, Thomas Hinds and Alexander Sleater and that he also saw the Memorial executed by Thomas Hinds. The final document was received and filed by the Registry of Deeds at 12 o'clock noon on the 12th of Nov 1777, soon after the death of Walter Hinds of Corrakane.10,11
Death*September 1777He died in September 1777 at Corrakane, Parish of Annagilif, Barony of Upper Loughtee, County Cavan, Ireland,4
Burial*25 September 1777 and was buried on 25 September 1777 in Church Graveyard, Ballintemple Parish, County Cavan, Ireland.8,12
Will18 July 1778Walter Hinds (1703-1777) of Corrakane left a will dated 5 Aug 1777 and proved on 18 July 1778. His Estate was large and he named eight beneficiaries, including Martha (Faris) Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, John Hinds, William Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Anne Hinds and Mary (Hinds) Clarke.

The will found at the National Archives of Ireland in 2005 had the following notation: "Extracted from the Registry of her Majesty's Court of Prerogative - Ireland." It begins: "In the Name of God Amen, Walter Hinds of Corrakane and County of Cavan considering the uncertainty of this natural life do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following revoking all wills by me made first." He then made the following bequests:

To his beloved wife Martha, £40 per year income to be paid out of the lands of Railagh, Curraneker, Cadelea (Cordelea?) and Drummakirky; £300 to be paid out of her husband's effects, and all of his household furniture.

To Ralph Hinds, his eldest son, the lands of Toberlion, Meelick and Duffin and the responsibility to pay his (Ralph's) brother John an annual income of £40. Also to Ralph, and to his heirs forever, the lands of Nedd and Carnagee, and £1000 to be paid out of his father's effects together with two score (40) of the best bullocks (castrated bulls, also known as oxen or steers) on the lands which he is to enjoy after his father's decease.

To Ralph's eldest son Walter, 20 of the best bullocks in Curruverlis.

Son John was mentioned again, as his second son, and in addition to the £40 of annual income mentioned earlier in the will, bequests an additional £400 to be paid out of his effects.

To William, his third son, and to William's male heirs forever, the lands of Reylough, Curnesky, Cornalea and Drummakirky with instructions to pay his mother the £40 annual income mentioned earlier. Apparently, in 1777 when the will was written, William had no sons because the will stated that the lands, failing William's male issue, were to go to Ralph Hinds and his heirs forever. William also was to receive £400 to be paid out of his father's effects.

To Thomas, his fourth son, the lease of Curridorelis (Curruverlis?) and Carygagh The Witnesses to the signing of his will were James Berry, James Carrolly and James Stephens.6,13,1
(Great Grandfather) ResidenceBallybrack House, located beside the village of Ballinagh, County Cavan, was thought to belong to Walter Thomas Hinds and it appears to fit the description of the two-story home Walter resided in at Corrakane as head of household in the 1821 census. One wonders, if it is Corrakane, if it is the same house lived in by his father Walter Hinds Barrister of Corrakane and great grandfather Water Hinds (1703-1777) of Corrakane. Members of his Hinds family, and likely Walter himself at least some of the time, lived there until 1880 when Walter Hinds, or his estate, sold it to George Graham who lived at Ballybrack House until 1911 when he sold the farm (100 acres) and house to a Smith man. In 1993 the house was owned by a McKenna man who farmed it but didn't reside there. Ballybrack House was two-storied over a basement. It was still intact in 1993, but was covered with ivy. It is thought to have dated back to the early 17th century and was lived in up to the 1950s or 1960s. A note that accompanied the linked photograph identified the house in the picture as the home of James Hinds in 1921 and it is not known whether the picture is actually of Ballybrack or of another Hinds family home.14

Walter Hinds

b. circa 1761, d. 27 March 1804
Relationship2nd great-grandson of John Hinds
ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Father*Ralph Hinds1,2 b. 1741, d. 1794
Mother*Esther Cannon
Name-DescriptiveNo longer a "missing link", we can report with confidence, that he now has a name and was Walter Hinds (the Missing Link)! He has been identified as the generational "missing link" we've needed, and researched to find, in order to connect Walter Hinds of the 1700s and Walter Hinds of the 1800s. It also may not be surprising that his name turns out to be yet another Walter Hinds.1,3
Birth*circa 1761Walter Hinds was born circa 1761 in County Meath, Ireland.4,5
EducationWalter's early education was provided by a private tutor named Mr. Keller.6
(Son) ResidenceGrowing up with his parents and siblings, Walter lived primarily at Mulhussey Castle, County Meath, Ireland.7
(Heir) Will18 July 1778Walter's grandfather, Walter Hinds (1703-1777) of Corrakane, left a will dated 5 Aug 1777 and proved on 18 July 1778, naming the following beneficiaries: Martha (Faris) Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, John Hinds, William Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Anne Hinds and Mary (Hinds) Clarke. To Walter, his son Ralph's eldest son, he gave 20 of the best bullocks in Curruverlis.8,9,1
Education19 December 1778He was identified as the son of Ralph, generosus, when he entered Trinity College, University of Dublin, as a pensioner at age 17 on 19 December 1778. (According to the Alumni publication and a Latin dictionary, a pensioner at that time was a student who paid a fixed sum annually and generosus meant of noble birth, aristocratic, well-bred.)4,10
Occupation1785He was admitted to the Irish Bar in 1785.6
Occupation*Walter Hinds was believed by his descendants to have been a Barrister in County Cavan, Ireland.1
Name-DescriptiveAt the beginning of our research, we knew this Walter Hinds only as the eldest son of Ralph of Mulhussey and a grandson of Walter of Corrakane. The descriptive name we used to clarify his identity, as we worked to place him correctly within the Hinds family, was Walter Hinds (Barrister of Corrakane).1
Marriage License*1789A marriage license bond was issued to Walter Hinds and Jane Smith in Diocese of Meath, County Meath, Ireland, on 1789.11
Marriage*circa 1789Walter Hinds married Jane Smith, daughter of ______ Smith, circa 1789 in the Meath Diocese, County Meath, Ireland.5,12
(Heir) Will15 April 1794Walter's father, Ralph Hinds of Kimmins Mill, County Meath, left a will dated 15 April 1794 and proved on 10 May 1794. His estate was quite large. He named eighteen beneficiaries, including Walter Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, Anne Hinds, Richard Stephens, Esther (Cannon) Hinds, Matthew Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Alexander Hinds, Mary (Hinds) Walsh, Michael Walsh, Clarissa (Hinds) Stephens, Martha (Hinds) Matthews, Eleanor (Hinds) Smith, Hester (Hinds) Dunn, Hester Stephens, Clarissa Stephens and Mary Anne Stephens. It appears from reading the will that he put much of his estate into a trust or series of trusts, with Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry as trustees, for the purpose of perpetuating the Hinds legacy for eternity. The order of succession was designed to be (1) Walter Hinds, eldest son; (2) Ralph Hinds, fourth son; (3) Walter Hinds, nephew and son-in-law, husband of daughter Anne Hinds; and (4) Richard Stephens, his grandson.

For the benefit of Walter Hinds, described in the will as Ralph's eldest son, the will directed Thomas Berry of Rockfield and Alexander Berry of Berrymount, both in the County of Cavan Esquire and to "their Heirs all that and those", the Towns and lands of Corrakane, Kilmainham, Clonmult and Corrarde with their sub-denominations situate in the County of Cavan to be held in Trust for Ralph's eldest son Walter... "

" ... in trust to permit and suffer my said son Walter and his Assigns to take and receive the rents, issues and profits thereof during the term of his natural life"... and then after Walter's death the same situation for any male heirs, lawfully begotten by Walter, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births. And, should Walter not have any sons, then at Walter's death his inheritance was to be given to Walter's brother Ralph Hinds...So, next in line was Ralph, his fourth son and for his Assigns, for and during the term of his natural life and with the same conditions for receipt of rents, issues and profits outlined for Walter. And also with the same conditions of succession to Ralph's male heirs, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births.

Next in line was Ralph's nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, husband of Ralph's daughter Anne Hinds, with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession previously reviewed.

The last in line was Ralph's grandson, Richard Stephens, again with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession.

As trustees, Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry and their Heirs during the natural life of the said Ralph Hinds were instructed to support the contingent remainders hereinafter limited from being defeated and destroyed and for that purpose to make entries and bring actions as occasion should require.

Ralph further bequeathed to his son Walter Hinds, and his heirs forever, outside of the other trust established, all the estates, lands, tenements or hereditaments late in the possession of his (Ralph's) brother William Hinds and all interest and claim whatsoever in and to the same which Ralph either had in his possession, or was in any respect entitled to, at the time of William's death.

The will provided, also, that his son Walter should have the power of settling respectively on his wife or wives by way of jointure, any sum not exceeding the sum of twenty pounds. Any such jointure was to be paid yearly out of such lands that belonged to son Walter, who had the right, but not the obligation, to make the jointure.13
Deed Memorial*6 February 1795A deed of lease and release dated 05 and 6 February 1795 was made between Walter Hinds of Corrakane, grandson and heir at law of Walter Hinds, late of Corrakane, deceased, of the first part, Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, eldest son and heir at law of Thomas Hinds, deceased, and also a grandson of Walter Hinds of Corrakane deceased, of the second part, Thomas Hinds of the city of Dublin of the third part, and Christopher Matthews of Baytownpark in the county of Meath, of the fourth part, whereby Walter Hinds of Corrakane and Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, for the considerations therein mentioned, did give, grant, bargain, sell, remise, release and confirm unto Thomas Hinds, his heirs and assigns, all that and those the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy to hold the towns, lands and premises unto Thomas Hinds to the intent that he might become perfect tenant of the freehold to the end that one or more common recovery or recoveries might thereof be had and suffered in which Christopher Matthews was to be the demandant (or plaintiff) in the recovery or recoveries, Thomas Hinds the tenant, and Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin was to be vouched to warranty. And the recoveror and recoverors in such recovery and recoveries named or to be named to stand and be seized of the towns, lands and premises to the only use and behalf of Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, his heirs and assigns, subject to the charges and encumbrances contained in the articles of agreement therein and herein before mentioned.3
(Heir at Law) Land Recovery1795A common recovery was suffered on the towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy in Easter term 1795 and Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall, by virtue of his earlier deed of release and common recovery, became seized in his demesne as of fee of, and in, the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy.3
Kilmore Cavalry*5 January 1797Walter Hinds Esq. of Corrakane or his first cousin Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall received a commission to be Second Lieutenant in the Kilmore Cavalry on 5 January 1797. The newspaper announcement from the War Office, Dublin Castle, Dublin, stated that His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant has been pleased to sign Commissions for the following Gentlemen to be Officers in the under mentioned District Corps. The article identified him only as Walter Hinds Esq. and we are not able at this point to determine which of the Walter cousins it was. Both were about the same age and both died as young men between 1804 and 1805.14
Death*27 March 1804He died on or about 27 March 180412
Burial*30 March 1804 and was buried on 30 March 1804 in Church Graveyard, Ballintemple Parish, County Cavan, Ireland.15
(Father) ResidenceBallybrack House, located beside the village of Ballinagh, County Cavan, was thought to belong to Walter Thomas Hinds and it appears to fit the description of the two-story home Walter resided in at Corrakane as head of household in the 1821 census. One wonders, if it is Corrakane, if it is the same house lived in by his father Walter Hinds Barrister of Corrakane and great grandfather Water Hinds (1703-1777) of Corrakane. Members of his Hinds family, and likely Walter himself at least some of the time, lived there until 1880 when Walter Hinds, or his estate, sold it to George Graham who lived at Ballybrack House until 1911 when he sold the farm (100 acres) and house to a Smith man. In 1993 the house was owned by a McKenna man who farmed it but didn't reside there. Ballybrack House was two-storied over a basement. It was still intact in 1993, but was covered with ivy. It is thought to have dated back to the early 17th century and was lived in up to the 1950s or 1960s. A note that accompanied the linked photograph identified the house in the picture as the home of James Hinds in 1921 and it is not known whether the picture is actually of Ballybrack or of another Hinds family home.16

Descendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs (#2)
Father*Thomas Hinds1 d. May 1794
Mother*Anne Slator1 d. 6 Jan 1816
Name-DescriptiveThe descriptive name we used to clarify the identification of this Walter Hinds, as we worked to place him correctly within the Hinds family, was Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall.1
Marriage License1794A marriage license bond was issued to Walter Hinds and Anne Hinds in the Diocese of Meath, Ireland, in 1794.2
Marriage*1794Walter Hinds married his first cousin Anne Hinds, daughter of Ralph Hinds and Esther Cannon, in 1794.1,3
(Heir) Will15 April 1794Walter's uncle and father-in-law, Ralph Hinds of Kimmins Mill, County Meath, left a will dated 15 April 1794 and proved on 10 May 1794. His estate was quite large. He named eighteen beneficiaries, including Walter Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, Anne Hinds, Richard Stephens, Esther (Cannon) Hinds, Matthew Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Alexander Hinds, Mary (Hinds) Walsh, Michael Walsh, Clarissa (Hinds) Stephens, Martha (Hinds) Matthews, Eleanor (Hinds) Smith, Hester (Hinds) Dunn, Hester Stephens, Clarissa Stephens and Mary Anne Stephens. It appears from reading the will that he put much of his estate into a trust or series of trusts, with Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry as trustees, for the purpose of perpetuating the Hinds legacy for eternity. The order of succession was designed to be (1) Walter Hinds, eldest son; (2) Ralph Hinds, fourth son; (3) Walter Hinds, nephew and son-in-law, husband of daughter Anne Hinds; and (4) Richard Stephens, his grandson.

For the benefit of Walter, described in the will as Ralph's eldest son, the will directed Thomas Berry of Rockfield and Alexander Berry of Berrymount, both in the County of Cavan Esquire and to "their Heirs all that and those", the Towns and lands of Corrakane, Kilmainham, Clunomuet and Corrarde with their sub-denominations situate in the County of Cavan to be held in Trust for Ralph's eldest son Walter... "

" ... in trust to permit and suffer my said son Walter and his Assigns to take and receive the rents, issues and profits thereof during the term of his natural life"... and then after Walter's death the same situation for any male heirs, lawfully begotten by Walter, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births. And, should Walter not have any sons, then at Walter's death his inheritance was to be given to Walter's brother Ralph Hinds...So, next in line was Ralph, his fourth son and for his Assigns, for and during the term of his natural life and with the same conditions for receipt of rents, issues and profits outlined for Walter. And also with the same conditions of succession to Ralph's male heirs, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births.

Next in line was Ralph's nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, husband of Ralph's daughter Anne Hinds, with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession previously reviewed.

The last in line was Ralph's grandson, Richard Stephens, again with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession.

As trustees, Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry and their Heirs during the natural life of the said Ralph Hinds were instructed to support the contingent remainders hereinafter limited from being defeated and destroyed and for that purpose to make entries and bring actions as occasion should require.

To his nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, his Executors, Administrators and Assigns, he gave the Bond and Judgment Debt owed to Ralph by Richard Johnston, late of Dunmuelty in the County of Dublin, deceased, and also the sum of seventy-two pounds eighteen shillings due to Ralph with interest from the year 1780 by his brother Thomas Hinds, and also the sum of twenty-six pounds three shillings and three pence due to Ralph by his sister Anne Hinds, Walter's wife, and also the sum of fifty pounds due to Ralph by Patrick Halffrenry, late of Bolis in the County of Meath.

Another section of the will described another trust, or sub-trust, in which Walter was named as the next beneficiary after the younger Ralph's sons. The will gave the Town and Lands of Nasterstown in the County of Meath and Tubberlion, Meelick and Duffin, Nedd and Comaga in the County of Cavan. According to the will, the purpose of the trust was to support and preserve the contingent remainders from being defeated and destroyed, and instructed the trustees to make entries and bring actions as the case should require, while still permitting Ralph to take the rents, issues and profits during the term of his natural life. After son Ralph's death, the succession of inheritance was to follow the same pattern and conditions outlined earlier in the will: passing first to Ralph's male heirs, then to Ralph the Elder's nephew and son-in-law Walter Hinds and his wife Anne Hinds, and to their male heirs, then to Ralph the Elder's grandson, Richard Stephens, eldest son of Ralph's daughter Clarissa Stephens, and to his male heirs, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of births.

Additionally to his nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, he gave the desk and bookcase from his bedroom and the Ewe table in the parlour.

He also appointed son Ralph Hinds and his nephew and son-in-law Walter Hinds as his Executors.4
(Eldest Son) WillWalter's father died in May 1794 having made his last will and testament which left the Lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy to his eldest son, Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall, and the sum of £1000 to each of his six younger children, Alexander Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Isaac Hinds, Martha Hinds, Elizabeth Hinds and Mary Hinds. The will appointed his wife, Anne (Slator) Hinds, son-in-law George Warner and his second son, Alexander Hinds, Executors.1
Inheritance*Following the death of his father, Walter, as the eldest son, came into possession of the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy.1
Deed Memorial*6 February 1795A deed of lease and release dated 05 and 6 February 1795 was made between Walter Hinds of Corrakane, grandson and heir at law of Walter Hinds, late of Corrakane, deceased, of the first part, Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, eldest son and heir at law of Thomas Hinds, deceased, and also a grandson of Walter Hinds of Corrakane deceased, of the second part, Thomas Hinds of the city of Dublin of the third part, and Christopher Matthews of Baytownpark in the county of Meath, of the fourth part, whereby Walter Hinds of Corrakane and Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, for the considerations therein mentioned, did give, grant, bargain, sell, remise, release and confirm unto Thomas Hinds, his heirs and assigns, all that and those the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy to hold the towns, lands and premises unto Thomas Hinds to the intent that he might become perfect tenant of the freehold to the end that one or more common recovery or recoveries might thereof be had and suffered in which Christopher Matthews was to be the demandant (or plaintiff) in the recovery or recoveries, Thomas Hinds the tenant, and Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin was to be vouched to warranty. And the recoveror and recoverors in such recovery and recoveries named or to be named to stand and be seized of the towns, lands and premises to the only use and behalf of Walter Hinds of the city of Dublin, his heirs and assigns, subject to the charges and encumbrances contained in the articles of agreement therein and herein before mentioned.1
Land Recovery*1795A common recovery was suffered on the towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy in Easter term 1795 and Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall, by virtue of his earlier deed of release and common recovery, became seized in his demesne as of fee of, and in, the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy.1
Kilmore Cavalry*5 January 1797Walter Hinds Esq. of Corrakane or his first cousin Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall received a commission to be Second Lieutenant in the Kilmore Cavalry on 5 January 1797. The newspaper announcement from the War Office, Dublin Castle, Dublin, stated that His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant has been pleased to sign Commissions for the following Gentlemen to be Officers in the under mentioned District Corps. The article identified him only as Walter Hinds Esq. and we are not able at this point to determine which of the Walter cousins it was. Both were about the same age and both died as young men between 1804 and 1805.5
Will*Walter wrote his last will and testament a few years after recovering and becoming seized of the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy whereby he bequeathed to his brother-in-law George Warner and his wife Anne Hinds, as co-trustees, the towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy to hold the same unto George Warner and Anne Hinds and the survivor of them and the heirs of such survivor forever subject to his just debts and chargeables as therein mentioned upon trust to levy and pay out of said lands unto Anne Hinds, his wife, a sum of £50 and also one annuity of £100 n lieu of all dower, and he gave to his son George Hinds the sum of £1500 payable as therein mentioned and to any other child he might have by his wife Anne Hinds the sum of £1000 provided, however, that if he should have such other child, his son George should only be paid a sum of £1000 instead of the legacy of £1500. And regarding such annuity and legacies, his will directed that his trustees should stand seized and possessed of the lands for and to the use of his eldest son Walter Hinds Esq., his heirs and assigns forever, and appointed his wife Anne Hinds and brother-in-law George Warner his executors.1
Death*He was probably only in his middle 30s when he died, leaving his widow Anne and three children, Walter, George and Martha.6,1
Probate*1805His will was proved in 1805.6

Walter Hinds1

d. 1702
RelationshipsBrother of John Hinds
2nd great-granduncle of Walter Hinds
Father-Possible*Jervis Hinds1 d. 1649
Research Notes*Walter Hinds is included on indexes with an Icon indicating he was a "descendant" of John Hinds, the earliest Hinds originally identified, because we believe that all of the Hinds people included on the site were members of our Hinds family. Walter appears to have been of John's generation, however, and may have actually been a brother, cousin or something else. He does not appear on the John Hinds Descendancy Chart because their actual relationship has not been determined.1
(Brother-Possible) Research NotesThe Hinds family descendancy chart received from the source identifies three Hinds brothers in the 1600s named Jervis Hinds, John Hinds and Jonas Hinds, sons of an unidentified Hinds patriarch. The chart indicates that Jervis had two sons, Ralph Hinds, who died in 1690, and Walter Hinds, who died in 1702. Ralph and Walter may have been brothers of our previously identified John Hinds ( -1706), whom we had originally positioned as our earliest known ancestor. Although our John Hinds ( -1706) is not shown on the source's chart, beginning with the next generation almost everything agrees. We are going to need more information before we can feel confident that what we are presenting here is accurate. So, for the time being on our own descendancy chart, we will continue to show John Hinds ( -1706) as our earliest known Hinds progenitor.1
Death*1702He died about 1702.1

The deed began by outlining the Hinds family's history with the lands, reciting first that Walter Hinds, formerly of Corrakane in the county of Cavan, was seized in fee of and in the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy previous to the year 1770, and that, being so seized, had conveyed the lands to his son Thomas Hinds as a child's portion in the marriage settlement agreement he made in August 1770 with Alexander Slator of Whitehill, County Longford, father of Thomas' wife Anne (Slator) Hinds. And reciting that, as a part of that agreement, after the death of Thomas, his widow Anne was to receive a jointure of £50 a year payable out of the lands. The agreement also directed that, after the death of Thomas, the lands should descend to his male issue and that, after the death of his widow Anne, her jointure should revert to the couple's male issue. The agreement also permitted Thomas, at any time he thought proper, to raise the sum of £1000 as a portion for each of his younger children, whether males or females.

The 1821 deed then recited that the marriage between Thomas Hinds and Anne Slator was duly had and solemnized and that Thomas entered into possession of the lands and remained seized thereof until the time of his death. It recited that he died in 1794 leaving Anne Hinds otherwise Slator his widow, also since deceased, and seven children of the marriage, namely Walter Hinds, his eldest son and heir at law, Alexander Hinds, his second son since deceased, Thomas Hinds, his third son since deceased, Isaac Hinds, Martha Warner, now the wife of George Warner, Elizabeth Kennedy and Mary Hinds. It recited that previous to his death, Thomas Hinds duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he left to his eldest son Walter the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy, and to each of his six younger children the sum of £1000. His will had appointed his wife Anne Hinds, his son-in-law George Warner, and his second son Alexander Hinds his executors.

The 1821 deed next recited that Thomas Hinds the younger was also dead, having first duly made his will whereof he appointed his wife Anne McCluskey his executrix, and that his second son Alexander Hinds was also dead but, previous to his death, had duly made and published his last will and testament by which he appointed his mother, Anne Hinds the elder, his sole executrix, and that Anne Hinds the elder was also deceased and that she had by her last will appointed her son Isaac Hinds her sole executor. The death of Mary Hinds, another of the children of Thomas and Anne Hinds the elder, was also recited, with the statement that her brother Isaac had obtained letters of administration for all of her properties.

The 1821 deed went on to recite that Walter Hinds, upon the death of his father Thomas, entered into possession of the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy and that by deeds of lease and release, followed by a deed of common recovery, both in 1795, had become seized in his demesne, as of fee, of and in the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy. And that being so thereof seized, he duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he gave and bequeathed to his wife Anne Hinds and his brother-in-law George Warner, as trustees, the said towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy.

Education*5 February 1822He continued his education, first at St. Mary Hall at Oxford University, England, until 5 February 1822 when he was age 232,5
Graduation11 November 1824 and then at Gray's Inn, London, where he graduated with a Master of Arts degree on 11 November 1824.2
Education1826He earned his Barrister-at-Law in 1826 at London.

According to Wikipedia, a Barrister, also termed as a Barrister-at-Law or Bar-at-Law, is a member of one of the two classes of lawyer found in many common law jurisdictions with split legal professions. Barristers specialize in courtroom advocacy, drafting legal pleadings, and giving expert legal opinions. They can be contrasted with solicitors – the other class of lawyer in split professions – who have more direct access with clients, and may do transactional-type legal work. Barristers are rarely hired by clients directly but instead are retained (or instructed) by solicitors to act on behalf of clients.

The historical difference between the two professions – and the only essential difference in England and Wales today – is that solicitors are attorneys, which means that they can act in the place of their client for legal purposes (as in signing contracts) and may conduct litigation on their behalf by making applications to the court, writing letters in litigation to the client's opponent, and so on. A barrister is not an attorney and is usually forbidden, either by law or professional rules or both, from "conducting" litigation. This means that, while the barrister speaks on the client's behalf in court, he or she can do so only when instructed by a solicitor or certain other qualified professional clients, such as patent agents.2,4
OccupationHe was probably the Walter Hinds identified as a Clerk of the Petty Sessions and had the responsibility for the arranging and administration of the law. The source noted that there would have been 30 courts in Cavan alone, and that Cavan had jurisdiction over County Monaghan and County Leitrim as well.6

Birth*1800Walter Thomas Hinds was born, as calculated from his recorded age at death, about 1800 in County Cavan, Ireland.5,1,6
EducationWalter's early education was provided by a private tutor named Mr. Craig.7
Education*4 July 1814He was identified as the son of Walter, generosus, when he entered Trinity College, University of Dublin, as a pensioner at age 16 on 4 July 1814. (According to the Alumni publication and a Latin dictionary, a pensioner at that time was a student who paid a fixed sum annually and generosus meant of noble birth, aristocratic, well-bred.)8,9
Residence*Walter Hinds Esq. lived with his mother, Jane (Smith) Hinds, and his sister, Mary Anne Martha Hinds, at Portland Place, Dublin, at the time his sister's marriage settlement was signed in September 1817.10
(Brother) Marriage Settlement15 September 1817 On 15 September 1817 James Ellis of Summerhill, County Meath, and his bride-to-be, Mary Anne Martha Hinds, spinster of Portland Place in the City and County of Dublin, were participants in a Memorial Deed of Marriage Settlement agreement. Others participating in the settlement included Jane Hinds of Portland Place, Dublin, a widow and the mother of Mary Anne Martha Hinds, Walter Thomas Hinds Esq., also of Portland Place, Dublin, the son of Jane Hinds and brother of Mary Anne Martha Hinds and William Smith Esq. of Laracor in the County of Meath.

The Memorial deed recited that a marriage had been agreed upon and was soon intended to occur between James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds and that James Ellis was entitled under the will of his uncle John Cade late of Ledden Hall Street in the City of London, a Merchant deceased, to the sum of £700 payable upon the death of his mother, Mary Cade, otherwise Ellis, and that that sum was at that time invested at 4 percent compounding in the Bank of Ireland in the name of John Robinson of Ledden Hall Street, a Merchant, as a Trustee for James and his mother. It further recited that Jane Hinds, the mother of Mary Anne Martha Hinds, had agreed to give her daughter a fortune of £500 and that it had been agreed by James Ellis, Mary Anne Martha Hinds and Jane Hinds upon the surety of the intended marriage that the sum of £700 should be assigned to and vested with Walter Thomas Hinds Esq. and William Smith Esq. and that the sum of £500 should be paid to Walter Thomas Hinds and William Smith as Trustees for the specific intents and purposes outlined in the agreement.

James Ellis, in consideration of the marriage, had agreed that Mary Anne Martha Hinds, in case she should survive him after their marriage had been solemnized, should have, hold and enjoy during the term of her natural life all the Estate, Real, freehold and personal, he owned or was entitled to at the time of his death. Jane Hinds, with the agreement of James Ellis, had already paid to Walter Thomas Hinds and William Smith, as Trustees, her portion of £500 and it was therefore established that James Ellis and Jane Hinds had each vested their sums of £700 and £500 with the Trustees for the following Trusts: the sum of £700 in Trust for James Ellis, his Executors, Administrators and assigns until the said intended marriage should be duly had and solemnized; and the sum of £500 held in trust for Jane Hinds, her Executors, Administrators and assigns until the intended marriage should be dully had and solemnized. Then, from and immediately after the solemnization of the intended marriage, the two sums of £700 and £500, with Walter Thomas Hinds and William Smith as Trustees, and the survivor of them, and the heirs, Executors, Administrators and assigns of such survivor, were to invest the sum of five hundred pounds in Government or other good and rated security with the prior written approval of James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds, and that they were to permit James Ellis and his assigns during the time of his natural Life to have, receive and take for his own proper use and behalf all the dividends, interest and other profits which should during his natural life accrue, arise, be made by or from the two sums of £700 and £500 or any portion of them and from and immediately after the death of James Ellis, in case Mary Anne Martha Hinds should survive her husband, the Trustees were to permit Mary Anne Martha Hinds and her assigns during her natural Life to receive and take for her own use, all the dividends interest and other profits which should during her life accrue, arise or be made by or from the two sums of £700 and £500 or any portion of them.

After the deaths of both James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds, the Trustees, heirs, Executors, Administrators and assigns were to transfer, assign, pay, apply or dispose of all the several sums or parcels of stock and all the dividends, interest and other profits thereof to each and every of the sons and daughters lawfully to be begotten of James Ellis upon the body of Martha Hinds and the children of such sons or daughters in case any of them should be then dead leaving issue in equal shares and proportions, and if but one, wholly to that one. But the child or children of such sons or daughters as should then happen to be dead, should be entitled only to the share which his, her or their Father and Mother would have been entitled to if living; equally to be divided amongst such children if there be more than one and if but one, wholly to that one. In case Mary Anne Martha Hinds should survive James Ellis, and should not have any issue of their marriage living at the time of his death, or that having issue or being pregnant and that such issue should die unmarried in the lifetime of Mary Anne Martha Hinds, the Trustees, or the survivor of them, their or either of their Executors, Administrators or assigns were to transfer, assign and pay over to Mary Anne Martha Hinds or her assigns the several sums of money or stock and all the dividends, interest and other profits thereof, and of any part thereof, to her for her sole and separate use forever growing, arising or accruing from or out of the properties involved for and during the term of her natural life.

Following her death, and from and after the determination of the marriage settlement Estate then in Trust, the trustees were to pay, apply, dispose and divide the Estate in such manner as James Ellis should have directed, limited or appointed in writing, by his last will and Testament. Or, for want of such appointment, then the several sums of £700 and £500 were to descend to the next of kin of James Ellis, and if that were the case, the deed contained a Covenant permitting the Trustees, with the consent of James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds, to invest the several sums in other Securities to accrue to the Trustees and the deed also contained a clause that one Trustee should not be answerable for the act of the other.

The deed together with the memorial was witnessed, signed, sealed and delivered by James Ellis and Jane Hinds in the presence of William Wildrige and George Canall. William Wildrige, under oath, stated that he was a witness to the deed of which the above writing was intended to be a memorial and saw the same duly executed by James Ellis, Mary Anne Martha Hinds, Jane Hinds and Walter Thomas Hinds and also saw the above Memorial duly executed by the above named James Ellis and Jane Hinds and that he, William Wildrige, as a witness to the deed and memorial verified the participants' names and handwriting and stated he delivered the deed and Memorial to Francis Armstrong Esq., Deputy Register, at the Four Courts, Dublin at or near the hour of 2 o'clock in the afternoon of the 15th day of September Inst.

A memorial of the first of these four deeds, an indented deed of annuity dated 25 March 1824, was made between Walter Thomas Hinds of Corrakane, County Cavan, Esq. of the first part, Andrew Bell of Drumheel in County Cavan, Esq. of the second part, and Michael Babington of Cavan, in the county of Cavan, Esq., a trustee named and appointed by and on the part of Andrew Bell for the purposes thereinafter mentioned, of the third part.

Occupation*Walter Thomas Hinds was believed by his descendants to have been a Barrister in Ballinagh, County Cavan, Ireland.6
Marriage*circa 1844He married Margaret Charters circa 1844 in Ireland.1
ResidenceBallybrack House, located beside the village of Ballinagh, County Cavan, was thought to belong to Walter Thomas Hinds and it appears to fit the description of the two-story home Walter resided in at Corrakane as head of household in the 1821 census. One wonders, if it is Corrakane, if it is the same house lived in by his father Walter Hinds Barrister of Corrakane and great grandfather Water Hinds (1703-1777) of Corrakane. Members of his Hinds family, and likely Walter himself at least some of the time, lived there until 1880 when Walter Hinds, or his estate, sold it to George Graham who lived at Ballybrack House until 1911 when he sold the farm (100 acres) and house to a Smith man. In 1993 the house was owned by a McKenna man who farmed it but didn't reside there. Ballybrack House was two-storied over a basement. It was still intact in 1993, but was covered with ivy. It is thought to have dated back to the early 17th century and was lived in up to the 1950s or 1960s. A note that accompanied the linked photograph identified the house in the picture as the home of James Hinds in 1921 and it is not known whether the picture is actually of Ballybrack or of another Hinds family home.18
OccupationHe was probably not the Walter Hinds identified as a Clerk of the Petty Sessions and had the responsibility for the arranging and administration of the law. The source noted that there would have been 30 courts in Cavan alone, and that Cavan had jurisdiction over County Monaghan and County Leitrim as well. Walter, the Clerk, was more likely his double cousin Walter Hinds who received his Barrister-at-Law from Gray's Inn in 1826. While both Walters appear in records with the title Esquire, this Walter was usually identified as Walter Thomas Hinds and also used the title Gentleman.11
Death*26 June 1879Walter Hinds, Gentleman, died on 26 June 1879 in Ballinagh, County Cavan, at age 79. His death was certified and the cause was paralysis" of a three month duration." His son, Richard Hinds of Bellville, was present at his death, which was officially registered on 4 July 1879 in the Registrar's District of Ballinagh, in the Union of Cavan in the County of Cavan.19,6
Burial*He was probably buried at Ballintemple Church (St. Patrick's), Ballinagh. In 2005, a visit to the church and cemetery was disappointing. The cemetery was very overgrown and most of the stones had disintegrated beyond recognition.20
